Today was really strange! Year 6 – you have all been missed. We hope you have managed to follow a routine and have had a great day being taught at home by your wonderful families. I have managed to get out on a lovely walk – to follow the government guidelines I went for a walk around the countryside near my home, I did not see another person. I didn’t take Leo as he would’ve been worn out! What have you all been up to?
Hello everyone, just to let you know that the blog will remain active over the next few weeks and it would be great if we filled the blog with fun things you have been learning at home. We will be posting pictures and writing things for you to respond to.
Here are a few tips for home learning:
- have a routine similar to your school day – get up at your usual time and get dressed. Don’t sit around in your PJs as you won’t focus the same;
- work to a timetable and give yourself the same amount of time you would for lessons – for example 1 hour for maths;
- do not spend your time watching TV or going on a console – time that you are missing by not being in the school building does not mean you need to miss learning;
- some people advise that you leave the house and walk up and down the street and then come back to your front door to help you pretend you’ve gone somewhere new.
Remember…you have worked so hard whilst you have been at St Peter’s and you are all amazing human beings with kind hearts. Keep on working hard so that you continue to Learn, Sparkle and Shine.
We all love you very much,
Mrs Buckley, Mr Lane, Mrs Clegg, Mrs Greenhalgh, Mrs Milnes, Miss Sarwar, Mrs Smith, Mrs Sawyer, Miss Fitton and Mrs Hearsey.
Today Year 6 Blue visited Smithills Hall to record videos of our writing about the reported ghosts of this building.
Sister Dorothy visited us today to help us with our RE work. She looked at the various titles of Jesus and the bible stories that led to these names. We also looked at what people thought of Jesus and why. You can see pictures below:
Today we have been baking cakes to sell tomorrow to raise money for our class charity Gathimba Edwards. We had lots of fun this afternoon and the cakes are really tasty! Don’t forget to buy one tomorrow!
